Plants are busting out all over

I am very excited to report that we have seedlings! There is always a moment (or two or three) of anxiety "Oh no, nothing is coming up! It all rotted in the ground!" And just when I start to really wonder, ok, and maybe worry...here come the shoots. So far we have radishes, peas, spinach, lettuces, kale and potatoes poking out of the ground. The first picture is the peas poking out of the ground and the second is radishes. Just 29 days until the first radishes!!

Of course, the plants like tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes and eggplant are in the ground. These plants had a touch of transplant shock, but with some water and a little TLC, I think most will make it through the transition. It hasn't helped having strong winds the past 2 days. But the plants are close enough to the ground that they shouldn't snap off. The tomatoes are in their little jugs, at least until the wind dies down.
